tropical moisture out of the atmosphere. by the way, tropical depression don is inland in south texas. there is some rain, but that is it. a new tropical wave in the atlantic and they are investigating it now. wind is 35 gusting to 45, getting more organized. a very good chance it will become the next tropical system in the atlantic. emily would be the name, and it could be in the caribbean by the end of the week. partly cloudy and hot today, but not as hot or humid as yesterday. 90-95 for the height. northwest wind. on debate, northwind 5-10 knots. but the greatest rain chance will be to our south over the weekend. as far north as we are, the rain

9:45am
9:46am
9:47am
>> it is time to take a look at what is new in the adores. -- in theaters. >> "cowboys and aliens" and the most horribly titled. the problem with the execution is that it is as literal-minded as the movie itself. take a western with all of the cliches, then taken alien movie or a sci-fi and mash the m together. this is a fanboy dream.
9:48am
also the cowboys, of some aliens come and have them fight. -- awesome cowboys, awesome aliens. daniel craig is the lead, the lonesome gunman. he wakes up in the desert with no clue who he is. he has this contraction on his wrist. he is great in this film and he almost single-handedly saved it. daniel craig has a certain gravitas. you just want to stare at him. he almost holds the movie together on his own. harrison ford is planning of this land barron. his son has been kidnapped by the aliens and he is teaming up with daniel craig, a good guy ing maybe bad guty comeign
9:49am
together. i miss his cavalier thing. he is playing gruff and grouchy. i want him to lighten up. i wanted the whole movie to lighten up. it would have worked better as a parody. this is dreict -- directed by jon favreau, the guy who did "iron man." it's cowboys. it's aliens. i wanted it to be fun and reinvent the genre. it felt like they were just put together. 2 stars. >> next, "crazy, stupid, love."
9:50am
>> if you would have asked me what thelma was looking forward to come i would have said "crazy, stupid, love." ryan goslin, steve carrell, emma stone. i had high expectations, and i was slightly disappointed, but i did like it. i would up nearly recommended. it is my pick of the week. steve carrell's wife has left him. gosling is a good lucking -- looking ladies man. to pick up carrell pic ladies. the theme is to find your soul mate. i like gosling in a comedic role. the overarching theme of the
9:51am
movie was not that interesting. the store was a cliche, but all the details and acting were really high. 3 stars for "crazy, stupid, love." ." -- >> a better pick than "cowboys?" >> yes. >> see if the ravens go full speed ahead or slow and steady as the free
9:52am
9:53am
9:54am
>> the ravens are taking a wait and see approach to the open free agent market, but they are now waiting to see you the first round pick smith. he will wear no. 22 and he has all of the traits of a shutdown corner. 26 pick overall matching up nicely against fellow rookie. jimmy will have a bright future as the ravens starting quarterback. he will more than likely start. he knows he must not be handed that job, but he says he believes to be ready for it. what he was not ready for was the intensity of practice. he decided to get his legs ready ahead of time. >> i got up at 10:00 last night and ran a couple of miles to get my juices flowing for the run test this morning. after that i was like, well. it was a tough day, but i
9:55am
thought i got a lot workplace -- of work done. >> you do not always have to get your running a done the night before practice begins. the ravens will put pads on today and will practice out. with the free agent market opened, the biggest name in the market has moved to the philadelphia eagles who nabbed him up. it came as a surprise after it was the dallas cowboys and the new york jets to appeared to be the route one-two for his services, but the deal is a big one. five years, $60 million, $25 million guaranteed. here is some perspective on how much he will make. $187,000 every quarter of every game. landry will not make nearly that much, but it appears he will cash his name -- next check in jacksonville.
9:56am
he has reportedly agreed to a deal with the jaguars. free-agent tackle has visited the raiders, but has not yet agreed to a deal. jackson served on the coaching staff and played last tackle. he remains a force, but his inability to stay healthy remains a concern in the nfl. he spent all last season on the sidelines with back injuries. i am gerry sandusky and i hope your weekend is often a fantastic start. >> welcome it is a hot one. the orioles won last night against the yankees in new york 4-2. >> michael phelps won his 3rd gold in the championships. >> it will feel better tomorrow. >> have a great day everybody.
9:57am
>> be sure you are back tonight from 11 news at 6:00. >> this is a wbal-tv 11 news editorial from president and general manager dan joerres. >> we welcome the ravens back to the playing field. the end of the lockout is the beginning of the season. wbal-tv 11 and wbal am is glad this is over. the players turned into the
9:58am
discussions and but dissipated in workouts. now that an agreement has been reached, we can abri the one collective sigh and say, "let the games begin." since their arrival in 1996, baltimore has welcomed them with open arms. even without training camp of being open to the public, the roar of the crowd is ready for the preseason to the super bowl to cheer on our team. there is nothing like a team of our own, and we probably say, "welcome home, ravens." "welcome home, ravens."
